    Hi I am having a problem with a cat in my back garden,,,,, one of my little buff pekins got out and have not seen the a friend up the road had said same cat tried to get one of her chickens. It has been in my back garden for the last few days yes I have chased it out but it's one of these cat that look like a leperd. Do any of the sonic things work and are they harm full to the chicken getting desperate as I have three other little ones.:(:([​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    No your only real hope is a live trap. If you know the owner, you might have luck bringing the cat back to her in the trap and talking to her (maybe hint at planning on getting a snap trap soon (just for weasels ;) ) and see if she can become a more responsible owner. Or take the cat to a shelter.

    If you know anyone with a live trap if not call animal control to see if you can borrow one and catch it and call animal control to come and pick it up.
